Frequently Asked Questions

I have an injury. Do you offer modifications?

Absolutely! In fact, we encourage modifications. Our trainers will offer modifications for mostly all of our exercises. If you need additional modifications, please let your trainer know.

What should I bring to class?

We require closed-toe athletic shoes. You should wear something you can comfortably move in. You can bring a water bottle. We have a water fountain and bottled water to purchase if you forget. We also highly recommend bringing your own towel.

Do I need to sign up online before taking a class?

We always recommend signing up because our class sizes are limited and once we run out of room, we have to turn clients away. Most of the time signing up the morning of is sufficient. However, our busier classes (weekend classes or any specialty class) tend to sell out ahead of time and it is always recommended signing up 24 hours in advance.

How many days per week do you recommended coming?

Our members typically take 3-5 classes per week. We recommend taking at least 1-2 rest days per week to allow your muscles to recover. When you are first starting out, we recommend about one rest day between your workouts, although more experienced exercisers may consider increasing their frequency.

Should I still come in if I’m really sore?

Listen to your body. Sometimes being sore is a sign of a good workout and sometimes it can be your body telling you to slow down. If you still want to workout, we recommend taking extra time to stretch both before and after to combat aches and stiffness.

Will this workout be too hard for me?

If you can move, you can do this workout. The best part about what we do is that it can be modified for any level. You can walk on the treadmill, use light weights and take breaks whenever you please. Either way, you’ll feel great after our workouts!

I haven’t been to the gym in years. How can I get back into a routine?

All you have to do is show up, we'll do the rest. All of our routines and classes are modifiable to any level, so whether you are brand new to working out or an Olympic athlete, we have something for everyone.

I have some friends visiting. Do you offer guest passes?

Our First Free Class is only offered to clients who live nearby, however, all clients with memberships get one Free Guest Pass every month that they can use on anyone they want.

Do you offer Group Discounts?

Yes! If you sign up for a membership with a friend, you BOTH get 10% off. Shoot us an email when you’re both ready or purchase and we’ll email you back a discount code.

Can I freeze my membership if I’m going out of town or get injured?

Sure! If you are heading out of town, we can freeze your membership for $25. If an injury happens to cross your path, we would be happy to freeze your membership for as long as your doctor recommends you are out. Providing a doctor’s note will ensure you do not incur a freeze fee.

Can I take classes while pregnant?

We recommend checking with your doctor first, but we do have many expecting mothers come in and take our classes. We are always happy to offer modifications. Please notify your trainer before class starts that you are pregnant so you can have dialogue about what movements you are unable to do.

Should I eat before my workout or after?

Listen to your body. Some people like to fast until after their workout and some like to eat before. If you come in with a growling stomach, you might not have enough energy to really push yourself during the workout, but if you come in too full, it might weigh you down during your workout. It's always good to remember that your body needs fuel in order to complete your workout. We always recommend water throughout your workout so you don't become dehydrated.

Do any of your trainers offer personal training?

Yes, most of our trainers are available and would love to help with a personal goal or specific imbalance if you are in need of some one-on-one or small group training. You can get more information here: Or by emailing us here:

What is Integrated Interval Training?

Integrated Interval Training (or I.I.T.) is a type of interval training where both high and low intensity exercises are integrated into a workout program, and broken down into specific interval lengths. At Poise we break our exercises into quick intervals and utilize not only the individual exercises, but also their synergy.
